Caption: Coloured scanning transmission electron micrograph (STEM) of an edge of a brushite crystal grown on a protein coated surface. Brushite is a precursor to apatite, the main mineral content of human bones and teeth. There's a lot of interest in understanding how apatite formation occurs so that it can be replicated to treat decayed tooth enamel.
